shows the global imbalance, which has more to do with fiscal policies in the united states, the household savings rates in the united states and the distortions in china, which inflates their savings rate artificially. that has to do with the international exchange. the international exchange is essentially a way for these economies to be adapting to the pressures and these distortions, which really have to do with the domestic policy. >> since the issue is so important and so treacherous, i would like to ask if the other panelists have any comments for this question. >> let me complain about this component, the most concerning aspect of this is in the financial sector. this is being promoted by many people in the official sector, who say that one way to make the system safer is to do this. this is, in a way, very understandable because of the problems that many of the smaller countries or dealing with. if we go down this route and we have protectionism with financial services, this will carry with it some bad implications. the least of which is that much of the growth in t
-election to the united states senate. on each of these occasions, i have begun my remarks by observing that every important journey in life begins and ends at home. today is no exception. what is different about today, however, is not to announce the beginning of yet another campaign for the united states senate, but rather to announce that after 35 years of representing the people of connecticut and the united states congress, i will not be a candidate for re-election this november. i want to begin these very brief remarks by expressing my deepest gratitude to the wonderful people of connecticut for the remarkable privilege of being elected eight times over the past four decades to our national assembly. you have honored me beyond words with your confidence. let me quickly add that there have been times when my positions and actions have caused some of you to question that confidence. i regret that. but it is equally important that you know that i have never wavered in my determination to do the best job for our state and our nation. i love my job as your senator. i always have, still do. howeve
.org. >>> in yemen where the plot was planned, the united states has reopened its embassy after it was closed for two days because of security concerns. u.s. officials say successful counter terrorism operations by yemen had allowed them to resume operations. however, yemen's interior ministry issued its own statement, saying that the security situation in the capital had always been under control. and yemeni security officials say the government has sent thousands of troops to take part in a campaign against al qaeda in three provinces in recent days. as we have seen, the united states has been emphasizing an increasingly cooperative relationship with yemen in the last few days. underscored by comments over the weekend by president obama and a visit to yemen by general david petraeus. the commander of u.s. forces in the region. however, the "washington post" reports today that senior yemeni officials are playing down the partnership, fearing that the government could pay a heavy political price for aligning itself with the united states and appearing too weak to control al qaeda by itself. the artic
virginia. it is a huge room filled with computers. it is basically the brain of the united states intelligence system. any tip -- it was created after september 11. this was the place that was supposed to answer the 9/11 commission report on the failure to connect the dots. this is the place. this is one of its first big tests. this is a place in northern virginia were all the data comes in. there's not a single agency that is supposed to run the show entirely. it's under the office of the director of national intelligence. it is under the director. it is not any single persons jurisdiction. all the different agencies are supposed to be participating. they are all supposed to share the data and make sure they do not miss things. in design, it is supposed to do exactly what it should have done here. it did not. why? i do not know the answer. caller: good morning. in the regulatory world, there's a thing called root cause analysis when a problem occurs. you look to find out what the true systemic cause of the problem was. when i look at what i know, this was not a system failure. th
in the united states. checking this. count three is a willful attempt to rewreck and destroy an aircraft. again, this is literally coming into my ear as i am sharing it with you, and my producer is sharing the information, a ha! here we go. i just was able to finally open up this attachment that shares the information with us. i will go through with it one more time. all times -- do we have a steady cam to bring around? go ahead, robert. make your way over here. let me share it with the viewers here. i don't want to spend too much time on it, but being an important story, i want to show it. come in tight. grand jury charges common allegations at all times material to the indictment, delta airlines with the commercial flight, and two -- and goes on to explain exactly what happened there. is abdulmutallab, the defendant, who is a nigerian pas snational was a passenger on the flight, and then it talks about petn, and high explosive within the meaning of section 921 united states code. all of the stuff that essentially we have been talking about over the last week, but this makes it official, and t
. major garrett at the white house. good to see you. thank you. the united states embassy in yemen is back open for business tonight after the terrorist threat forced it to close for two days. the embassy reopened after local counter terrorism forces say they killed at least two al-qaeda militants who were reportedly behind that very threat. other western embassies are reopening. many with limited services and very high security. now word of another potential missed signal before the attempted christmas day bombing. this involved a radical imam whom the feds were watching after linking him to the fort hood killings. more than two months before the failed attack. katherine is live, this goes way back to october. right? >> reporter: that's correct. we have obtained a radical cleric's blog posting from october 7 and in that, american who supports al-qaeda from yemen, appears to hint an attack is in the pipeline. he writes america cannot and will not win. there is no rolling back of the world wide jihad movement. when this new front of jihad starts in yemen, it might become the single most imp
a price for that >> this time they are doing with it 1/6 of the united states' economy giving away not just hundreds of millions, giving away billions year after year to get this mismatched awful piece of legislation through the senate. outrageous. >> sean: what the political consequences? who pays a price for this? >> i think about 2006 the republicans made the mistake of thinking that earmarks weren't going to be a big deal. remember that they passed it over? we had the bridge to nowhere. this is a bill to nowhere because it doesn't get you where you want to be, i coined it. any way, it doesn't get them where they want to be. even speaker pelosi took a shot at the president saying this isn't the bill we thought we were going to get she is going to pass it through any way. >> it is so naked. it is so obvious what is going on. you can't pull the wool over the people's eyes. they noah is going on and who is -- they know what is going on and who is going to pay. >> sean: republicans were up nine points as we begin the new year. we see the president's approval ratings. does this trans
to either accept or contain iran or something like that is going to happen and here's the united states saying we want to continue the bush policy saying iran has to stop. it is in richmond. so why not change the policy to say okay we will allow iran enriched uranium under these terms and inspection and so on or otherwise we are setting ourselves up for failure and that is why i think it is wrong to make a test because if you need to test something you can't achieve of course you are going to get an f. >> i believe you can achieve something. i don't agree with that narrative and i don't believe the scenario with iran is automatically one that depends on complete -- >> what is achievable? >> what is achievable is changing the environment around iran was within the middle east and other great states like india, china and russia to essentially both running room to spread its influence through transnational networks also closed on other opportunities but then to offer what i think obama wanted to which was a constructive course, i am not a believer in that kind of hillary clinton's style of
, the house of representatives is the greatest society of frequent flyers in the entire united states, so they obviously understood personally, in a way that, you know, not everybody would, what it's like to be an an airline and have somebody lighting up next to you, so we worked very closely with all of these groups. they mobilized their grassroots entities, they all -- who all were incredibly effective aft contacting people in their states, who then contacted their members and the tobacco industry, this is -- this issue, it happened -- took place such a long time ago, so things are very different than they are now, but the tobacco industry strongly opposed to this. members who represented tobacco industry strongly opposed this, and it was a huge struggle, and he offered the amendment on the floor, we ended up winning by a very small majority, but i think it was really good example of how, you know, one member, pretty junior member really, working with a very effective grassroots coalition, with strong ties in d.c., and also we also had a very, very good piece of scientific information t
's "washington post" detailed the extent to which the united states missteps in yemen allowed al qaeda to expand and grow there as well. this super focused 9/12 mentality that conservatives now say we need to return to also wasn't able to capture the perpetrators of 9/11. as we learned incidentally from last week's suicide bombing that killed seven cia officers in khost, afghanistan, we are still looking for osama bin laden and ayman al zawahiri. the jordanian double agent recruited by the cia was brought in to help u.s. officials find zawahiri 8 1/2 years after our super focused 9/12 mentality. the danger in these bush policies being romanticized and retroactively impud with efficacy they didn't have is gwei may put those failed policies in place again. today we heard president obama announce a new program for screening passengers coming into the united states. >> as of yesterday, the transportation security administration, or tsa, is requiring enhanced screening for passengers flying into the united states from or flying through nations on our list of state sponsors of terrorism or other count
umar farouk abdulmutallab and prevent him from boarding an airliner and entering the united states. we must be able to stop such attempts. the intelligence community has made considerable progress in developing collection capabilities, but we need to strengthen our ability to stop new tactics such as the efforts of individual suicide terrorists. the threat has evolved and we need to anticipate new kinds of attacks and improve our ability to stay ahead of them and protect america. we can and we must outthink, outwork and defeat the enemy's new ideas. the intelligence committee will do that working closely with our nation's entire national security team. the statement today from the director of national intelligence. we got, he says. during president obama's speech today, the president announced that some changes would be coming, as a result of the failure to detect the christmas day attempt. >> counter terrorism officials have reviewed and updated our terrorist watch list system, including adding more individuals to the no-fly list. while our review has found that our watch listing syst
, however, is not to announce the beginning of yet another campaign for the united states senate, but to announce after 35 years of representing the people of connecticut in the united states congress, i will not be a candidate for reelection this november. i want to begin these very brief remarks by expressing my deepest gratitude to the wonderful people of connecticut, for the remarkable privilege of being elected eight times over the past four decades to our national assembly. you have honored me beyond words with your confidence. but me quickly add that there have been times when my position and actions have caused some of the to question that confidence. i regret that. but it is equally important that you know that i have never wavered in my determination to do the best job for our state and our nation. i love my job as your senator. i always have and still do. however, this past year has raised some challenges that insisted i take stock of my life. over the past 12 months, i have managed for major pieces of legislation through the united states congress. served as chair and
of representing the people of connecticut and the united states congress i will not be extended for reelection this november. jane: there you have it. three other democratic senators not seeking reelection including ted kaufman of delaware, will burris, and paul kirk. on the republican side there are six who said they will not run for reelection, and there is a look at those six. democrats could be facing a bit of a battle to keep that filibuster-proof supermajority in the senate. that is the talk of the town today. let's bring in fox news contributor and political analyst juan williams. one of the things that people who love to watch politics like all of us do, figure out how the pieces move around here. what is your take? >> well, i mean, the deal here in washington is that democrats jumping ship. the waters are too turbulent at the moment. it looks like tea party politics, anti-government politics, and anti-democratic politics, especially with the health care bill right now in the water. it is just too much for democrats. so you see a number of them saying they would prefer not to be around
targets in yemen, but the united states, itself. >> the president made it clear where the fault lies for the failed attack on christmas day. >> this was not a failure to collect intelligence. it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had. >> reporter: today's meeting comes as the administration finds itself on the defensive about how it initially handled the incident. >> sadly, the president is judged more on his public relations than on his governing. >> reporter: the challenge for the administration is clear -- >> terrorists only have to be lucky or successful once. we have to be successful every single time. that is an incredibly high standard, but one we should aspire to. >> reporter: and the president indicated just that. >> the margin for error is slim. the consequences of failure can be catastrophic. >> reporter: brian, the president also confirmed publically that the united states would no longer release any guantanamo bay detainees of yemeni descent back to their home country. guantanamo bay may not shut down for another two years. >> chuc
respected private business, revered private business more than we have now in the united states, that other nations have more pro-growth policies than we do, are more natural resource oriented than we are, less tax oriented, less exposure to budget deficits that we do here in america. remember the other night anna dark yoe jim hackett told us ghana and algeria are easier to deal with than the united states in doing business. algeria. read "savage war and peace," watch the. these are more investor friendly than the u.s.? if china is better than capitalist america, why shouldn't ghana be a hot bed of investment? what's safe for the united states? what's safer? we're going to talk about developed countries after the break. that's called a tease in tv speak. now i want to highlight the safest developing ones with terrific stocks to shock you -- that's right, i'm going to shock you out of your complacency. brazil, china and peru. that's right, you heard me. brazil, china and peru are all safe countries to put your money in. in many ways safer than the united states, because they do not favor a d
confirmed publicly that the united states would no longer release guantanamo bay prisoners of yemeni doesn't back to their homeland. >> make no mistake, we will fix anything that has damaged our interests and recruit. >> i'll ask a member of the 9/11 commission why so many of their recommendations have gone unheeded. that coming up. >>> moving to afghanistan, the suicide bomber who killed seven cia officers at an american military base. the terrorist was a double agent, and tonight we have new details on how he managed to slip through security. >> this is a jordanian doctor, one former senior u.s. intelligence official says he was providing very important information on some very high-level targets. >> the double agent was brought onto the cia base in afghanistan without first being given a polygraph test, one of the basic tools in establishing a spy's trustworthiness. he had provided bona fide information. a u.s. intelligence official says there was still questions about his reliability and the access he claimed to have through senior al qaeda leaders. >> he had already been to the base a
. to transform -- this is what they learned with the united states and the league of nations. you have can't have a long debate. this is what they did with the league of nations. they let people debate. no, no, no. you have can't have a debate. you also can't tell everybody your plan. you have to have it secret. got it. nancy pelosi i mean and the secret meetings today and no debate on global warming. it's over. then the third thing they learned never let a good crisis go to waste. well, as we discuss all of these things i want you to keep watching tonight with your eyes. you will see what i'm going to lay out for you tonight. people trying to collapse our economy. but remember, progressives see this as a fundamental transformation. something better than we've already had. as promised, by president barack obama. >> we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the united states of america. >> glenn: all right. so let me introduce you to the people who you would say are fundamentally responsible for unsustainability and possible collapse of the economic system. two people. cloward and fran
is where do you send these them? if you send them the united states, dollar series of complicated legal questions that arise. how long can you hold them the united states? if you can't deport them someplace elsedo you have to release them the united states? that would be a horrible outcome. and i think one of the questions that is a legitimate question is what is the plan in terms ofall of the legal framework that applies if there comes a point that people come into the united states and have to be held there. so those are legitimate issues to discuss which, frankly, go somewhat beyond the particular elements of the december 25 plot. >> rose: with respect to the president'seer on terrorism and the president's definition, john brennan has the president's ear, he's the point person for this president in defining the war against terrorism? >> he is, it's one of the reasons the president has asked mr. brennan to conduct this review of what happened o christmas day. he has his u.s. most respect and loyalty and respect for his service so he without a doubt is a point person. it's why the pres
of representing the people of connecticut and the united states congress, will not be a candidate for re-election. >> reporter: senator dodd's decision comes as one-third nutmeg state voters would back him, largely because of controversy over the financial dealings. critics claim he got two preferential mortgages from countrywide financial but he denied the special treatment. and voters were angered by the stimulus bill that helped aig executives get millions in bonus. he received more campaign contributions from aig than any other politicians. he alluded to it only briefly. >> there are some of you questioning my confidence. i regret that. >> reporter: the state's popular attorney general richard blumenthal announced he is running for dodd's seat. >> i look forward to being an advocate and fighter of the united states senator. much as i have been at attorney general. >> simmons was leading dodd in the polls and linda mcmahon has vowed to spend $30 million on the race. state republicans say dodd lost touch. >> he lost the trust of the connecticut voters. >> well dodd says he will continu
a phone call from the house democratic leader and he asked me to consider to run for the united states senate seat in the state of north dakota. i asked him very point-blank, is this an official ask. he says, yes, it is. i'm flattered. i'm honored. i can't say that i'm even considering it right now. >> but he didn't say he's not considering it. so you want to be sure to stay tuned for "the ed show," tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern. we know that ed is going to interview senator byron dorgan, who, again, announced he will not seek another re-election to the senate. 6:00 p.m. on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> oh, he's back. rush limbaugh returned to the airwaves today for the first time since a heart scare sent him to the hospital in hawaii. from the sound of things, he's fully recovered. >> boy, am i glad to be back. and folks, have you noticed what happened? my first day back, how many democrats have now quit? how many democrats have -- five or six. five or six have said no mas. no mas. there will be more. we'll talk about that. >> oh, yes. rush limbaugh takes a break and democrats thr
it off. gang, stop looking at you. this is the united states in the 1930s. we still had in front of us jets, cars, tvs, the refrigerator. nobody in the world had refrigerators. we made them! we had steel plants. the world came to us. we were 25 in 1930. 45 in 1970s. we still had our not ten poten but things would start to come down. cars, television. this is when we got off the gold standard and started to become a consumption. they new the end was coming. we couldn't keep building because the rest of the world could build it cheaper than us. then 65. when is this? now? 2010, 2012? i don't know. we were, we were going to -- our export was going to be financial advice. nobody in the world is listening to us now. we're consumption and what else? what else? lindsay graham thinks it's a solar panel. and the prius. that is not the answer. and i will show you the evidence on why next. >> glenn: all right. so now you know the situation with the debt and you can see, i mean, are we ever going to be competitive on the system that we have right now? progressives are telling us things are going
smaller than the whole united states. this is a big area and there are al qaeda cells springing up in new places. so what do you do about that? >>larry: hoping to do what? >> hoping to, you know, somehow eliminate them, degrade them and defeat them. you know, a giant task. i'm glad it's not mine. >>larry: do you fear them going to do other things in the united states? forget planes, how about shopping centers? ball games? >> exactly. we've talked about this, that you become generals fighting the last war. we're all worried about airline security. you go through an intense scrutiny getting on an airplane, but go on a train or go to a power plant or go to a mall where there are many more people than are on one of these aircraft, and something could happen. now, you can't get on a train in yemen and make it to the united states, so that's a problem for al qaeda, but this is the great question. you can ask the expert. there have been al qaeda cells or al qaeda affiliated individuals in this country operating. >>larry: and watching us tonight now, maybe? >> you know, who knows. that's the prob
? and what might israel do in i'll speak live with the new israeli ambassador here in the united states, michael orrin. >> and explosives are put in a passenger's luggage containment without him knowing. wait until you find out who planted the explosives and why. >>> attention all democrats. there's new reason for political fear. surprise announcements posing more threats to the party's grip on power. (announcer) we understand. you want to grow internationally. >>> jack cafferty is standing by with "the cafferty file." lots of news today. >> indeed. how dare they. democratic leaders have decided to bypass a formal conference committee in order to reconcile the two bills. instead leaders will hold informal -- another word for secret -- negotiations, meant to shut republicans and the public out of the process. what a far cry from the election. when then cant oy 'bama pledged to broadcast health care negotiations on c-span so the american people can see what the choices are, unquote. president obama hasn't even made a token effort to keep his campaign promises of more openness and transpar
. there were 12 firearms found at checkpoints around the united states. they have four instances of artfully conceived -- concealed, prohibited items being found at checkpoints and 24 incidents that involved a checkpoint closure, a terminal evacuation, or what they call a sterile area breach. i think that number is a little higher than normal, jon: jon any tsa problems reported? >> quite a few. in femed the bomb-sniffing dogs failed to test and were taken out of service. bad timing there. they had a scare yesterday at the bakersfield, california airport after a bag tested positive for explosives. no explosive. they opened the bag and found jars containing an amber-colored liquid, the contents of those jars apparently made two tsa officers sick. turned out to be jars of honey. of course we're learning the newark airport near you had problems with a security camera, the delayed response to a security breach. there was a big delay between the time of the breach and the time the terminal was closed down. in just the last few minutes there's an press conference at newark, one senator, bob menende
targets in yemen but in the united states. we had information that this group was working with an individual who was known -- who we now know was in fact the individual involved in the christmas attack. the bottom line is this. the u.s. government had sufficient information to have uncovered the plot and potentially disrupt the christmas day attack. but our intelligence community failed to connect those dots which would have placed the suspect on the no-fly list. in other words, this was not a failure to collect intelligence. it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had. the information was there, agencies and analyst who needed it had access to it, and our professionals were trained to look for it and bring it all together. now i'll accept that intelligence by its nature is imperfect, but it is increasingly clear that intelligence was not fully analyzed nor fully leveraged. Ñithat is not acceptable and i will not tolerate it. time and again we have learned that quickly piecing together information and taking swift action is critical t
on purpose. undercover. and you'll see that measures vary from airport to airport in the united states. >> and more of this interview next hour with our jeanne meserve. >>> pakistani intelligence officials now count five u.s. drone attacks over the last week. they're aimed at militants. the pace of the strikes has picked up considerably since a suicide bomber killed seven cia officers in afghanistan. pakistan says the latest drone attack killed at least 13 al qaeda or taliban. >>> the first portrait of princes william and harry together went on display at london's national gallery today. it shows the brothers in formal dress uniform in casual poses. the painting was done in five sittings by the artist nikki phillips. no matter how many layers you put on today, you'll probably need to double it by the weekend. intense wind and bitter windchills have everybody bundling up. we're back in a moment. hey, mayor white. how you doing? great. come on in. would you like to see our new police department? yeah, all right. this way. and here it is. completely networked. so, anything happening, suz?
reform and how it affects what you pay for drugs. health care spending in the united states it reached $2.3 trillion in 2008. that's an average of more than $7,600 per person. according to the department of health and human services. it is an increase of more than 4% from 2007. as lawmakers negotiate on the two different versions of health care legislation, we continue our two-part series and this time we take a closer look at how the proposed legislation impacts the pharmaceutical industry and how much we pay for drugs. earlier, we spoke with damien conover, independent analyst at morningstar. so how would you describe the impact of this health care reform on big pharma? is it going to be negative or positive, if it indeed goes through? >> right, what we're seeing is likely the reform proposal coming out of the senate and that particular proposal looks like it is going to be slightly beneficial for the pharmaceutical companies, but i think more perform that it looks like it is more likely neutral than anything. >> big pharma, we know, is going to be facing a lot of industry fees under th
american targets in yemen, but the united states itself. >> reporter: and the president made it clear where the fault lies for the failed attack on christmas day. >> this was not a failure to collect intelligence. it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence we already had. >> reporter: today's meeting comes as the administration finds itself on the defensive about how it initially handled the incident. sadly the president is judged more on his public relations than on his governing. >> reporter: the challenge for the obama administration is clear. >> terrorists only have to be lucky or successful once. we have to be successful every single time. that is an incredibly high standard, but one we should aspire to. >> reporter: and the president indicated just that. >> the margin for error is slight. the consequences of failure can be catastrophic. >> that was chuck todd reporting. also important to note the president said the attempted attack on christmas day will not influence his decision on whether to close guantanamo bay. however, he has suspended the release of guantanamo
. >> reporter: the united states is still the world's strongest economy but our competitive edge is eroding. >> that's why innovation is more important than ever. that's the key to good new jobs in the 21st century. >> we choose to go to the moon in this decade. >> reporter: in the 1960s, launching the apollo space program created millions of jobs. and led to innovations like fuel cells and freeze dried food. that same decade the defense department began building a computer network that became the internet. >> tens of millions of jobs were created from the innovation around the internet and it's time to do that again. >> reporter: justin rattner is chief officer for intel. >> now is the time to be investing and not saving. you don't save your way out of recession. you invest wur wyour way out of. now, look at what they're up against. india's high tech giant just opened this $120 million training center. the biggest corporate college in the world. >> people start with the company as their first job. >> reporter: the ceo says the 330-acre campus will train an army of 14,000 new engineers a ye
the united states congress, served as chair and acting chair of two major senate committees placing me at the center of the two most important issues of our time, health care and reform of financial services. i lost a beloved sister in july and in august ted kennedy. i battled cancer over the summer and in the midst of all of this, found myself in the toughest political shape of my career. >> you know, todd harris, it is a weird, strange world when a guy like chris dodd has to leave politics because of poll numbers and someone on your side of the aisle named david vitter who got caught with prostitutes, sex workers in washington and in his home state of louisiana and he's headed towards re-election. explain the thinking of the voters? could it be they vote on symptoms and are more angry about what is affecting them personally rather than what politicians are up to in their hanky panky world. >> i'm not from louisiana. >> explain his survival. >> he hasn't survived. >> he is headed toward it. >> he has a better connection despite anything happened in his past to the people of louisiana
the bottom line on this, john. as you know, senator chris dodd has made the united states senate his life. he's been in the senate for three decades, but he has had a series of very, very tough political battles. in connecticut, starting with the fact that he moved to iowa to run for president with his wife and his two small children, that's when connecticut voters started to turn on him, then the fact that he is the senate banking chairman and obviously wall street went south. there's been a lot of attention paid to the fact that he has close ties with the banking community. so all of those things, combined with the fact that it is just not a good potential year for democrats, made senator dodd decide finally to retire and not run again. >> so what does this mean for democrats in terms of their chances in the 2010 election? do they have a good solid candidate who could replace dodd? and what does it mean for the president's agenda? >> reporter: that's a good question. when it comes to connecticut, you would think that this would be a bad sign for democrats. but actually, because senator dodd
of sustained growth in the history of the united states. looking back on that, what did people complain about? the distribution of income and they say this and that about the period -- but that was the best period for macroeconomic stability. problems of education, productivity growth, those things were problems that create the difficulties in the distribution of income that people didn't like. the other part of the question -- i am sorry -- " but you know what, i forgot it myself. we will move on to missouri, roger on the democratic line. caller: i'm really pleased to have the opportunity to speak. when i started my economics and number of decades ago we talked a lot about federal reserve open market operations and i hear and read almost nothing about that except small, almost footnote in "the wall street journal" every day. could you discuss what open market operations play in the equation and how? guest: they are the main thing the federal reserve does. they said a 0-25% interest rate and to keep that they have to buy or sell. what they are doing now is they are buying mortgages, those are
like fetchin wasally. >> the president of the united states, after a two-hour meeting -- >> i'm not sure that's english, but we will go with it. >> well, it means talking. after two hours of talking with the intelligence and security officials in this country, the president centralled to the lectern in the white house and said we had enough information. we could have stopped it. we screwed up. listen to this. >> the bottom line is this. the u.s. government had sufficient information to have uncovered this plot and potentially disrupt the christmas day attack. but our intelligence community failed to connect those dots, which would have placed the suspect on the no-fly list. in other words, this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understands the intelligence that we already had. >> essentially the same problem we had lead to go 9/11 and other things butch the president looked like he was in control. he evidently, by all reports, was extremely ticked off. there was a report when it was time to have a second address over in hawaii, that t
